scott weiner: i know there has been some confusion and they have put together a better data base. if someone calls and says there is a box and i don't know what it is but it's at this address. does 311 have the ability or dpw have the ability to say this is an at&t box or mta box? >> they have some information but not all information because some of these cabinets are older. where we have information we are able to identify it as an at&t box but it's not always the case. supervisor scott weiner: the call goes to 311 and do they route all of those tickets to dpw or does it go directly to the owner? >> it depends on whether or not they know who owns the cabinet. if unknown often times, dpw will go and an abate it because they want to make sure it's abated in a timely manner. supervisor scott weiner: when dpw an abates the graffiti is it billed to the owner? >> currently for the other utilities i don't know. for at&t we did look into that. we are developing a process now where we do invoice. the reason why we have not done that is with specific guidelines at&t does have a special coding

supervisor scott weiner: if it's not fair that the city requires that, do you think, i mean -- >> if that's the city policy to stress that upon their property owners, i don't think it should be thrust upon us, i do believe we should help foster the planting so that it takes and it can survive, but beyond that we are not a landscape company. if the city wants to require landscaping in the public right-of-way we are happy to contribute to that cause but not for on going maintenance. we are required to maintain our cabinet in person and petuity but i disagree with you on that. supervisor scott weiner: if the city would take back responsibility on maintenance of the trees, do you think they should take responsibility for the right-of-way. >> if the city should take p responsibility for the right-of-way. >> the answer is no. >> if you ask mr. bateman, that's what his opinion is. wean in -- supervisor scott weiner: in terms of the murals. i understand you have your warranty and specification, i just don't understand why we can't have specifications for how you paint these boxes. b
